2014 Royals Caravan: Visiting GordoNation (a.k.a. Nebraska)
Prior to today, this blogger had visited Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri over the last three years on Royals Caravan. Today was my first trek to Nebraska while on Caravan – and what an experience it was! Alex Gordon is the pride of Lincoln Southeast High School and the University of Nebraska. Many fans today knew him personally and many more call him their favorite Royal. Today’s Caravan with Gordon, Dennis Leonard and FSKC’s Joel Goldberg featured a stop at a middle school in Blair, Nebraska. The kids made special posters for Alex, Leo and Joel. They also learned the importance of hard work in the classroom from Gordon and Leonard. The Royals donated seats from Kauffman Stadium to the school (the seats go in the school library as part of a reading promotion). Four lucky students had their picture taken next to the seats with Gordon and later with Leonard.
